Safari Cabin Rentals

Our Safari Cabins have remained fully operational through the COVID-19 Pandemic. They are single family dwellings and considered essential under Hotel/Motel Lodging! To help reduce our turnover rate, we do require a two-night minimum for any stay! No exceptions!

We have, however, experienced a few minor amenity changes: We are currently only offering our guided tours during regular weekdays. On weekends and holidays, we are strictly a drive-through to handle higher traffic and keep everyone safe! The pool is also limited to only 20 people at a time! The pricing and policies for our cabins are the same as always!

We have 8 safari cabins that are available for overnight stays throughout the year. These cabins offer beautiful views overlooking our hand-built lake and the surrounding Texas Hill Country.

Our cabins include many complimentary amenities. You can check out our amenities here!

Cabin #4 – Lucy’s Hideout

This is one of our oldest cabins! It was hand-built by a man who lived in it permanently on his ranch before we bought it and moved it here. Since then, we have added a huge bathroom and an extra bedroom!
